Bethesda has today announced that the sequel to 2006's Prey, imaginatively titled Prey 2, will be coming to consoles in 2012.

Original developer Human Head Studios is back on development duties for the sequel, utilising id Software's cutting-edge id Tech Engine - presumably the same engine currently being used to develop Rage. Presumably.

"We are thrilled to be working with Bethesda on Prey 2," said Chris Rhinehart, project lead on the Prey sequel. "Prey 2 will provide gamers the opportunity to explore a new facet of the Prey universe, one that offers fast-paced action in an open, alien world. We’re excited to show gamers the title we have been working on and hope they will be as excited by this title as we are."

First Prey used id engine, no reason this one shouldn't too.

Hopefully it'll be a good game. First one was pretty fun and had insane graphics. Nice to see Bethesda turning into a larger publisher.

Also I hope it won't take 10 years to develop like the last one did!

actually the single player was great but the mp was glitchly and almost unplayable.

Fortunately you could boost the achievements with just 2 players unlike most games now which require 4-6 players in mp in order for the trophies/achievements to unlock.

Prey? I must have been living under a rock in '06 because I've never heard of this game.

#14 "comment like this is stupid"

Finished products should not be glitch ridden and the major issues with dlc never were addressed but they were happy to continue to sell their confirmed glitched product.

Thank you for pointing out your ignorance and stupidity.

I see where your coming from Fallout 3 was glitch ridden and caused me to restart a mission multiple times because of a glitch. But the game overall was fun to play. Gameplay was 10/10 story sucked and you die in the end. Excluding the DLC Fallout 3 would of just ended. An open world game shouldn't need to rely on DLC to continue gameplay. But I don't blame you for hating it. To be honest if the gameplay was choppy and there wasn't VATS I'd hate it too.

@18, It would be nice for you to not put any spoilers here for the people who havent played it.
I thought the story was awesome,better then New Vegas for sure.
Prey was pretty good. The Singleplayer was awesome. I think I will get this, after I put 300 hours into Skyrim ofcourse.

One man's glitches are another man's charming idiosyncrasies.

I did enjoy Prey and online was ok when I played it run quite smooth, just a shame there wasnt a ranking system on game for online.

I love seeing Bethesda growing as a developer, but I hope it inspires them to get better at gametesting and patching glitches...on the other hand, I know so many people who previously bought all their games but are now into hacking them after playing Fallout 3, where they had to fix many of the glitches themselves, and now they only play hacked / pirated in a way Bethesda has really boosted the hacking / piracy community
